Furious to ESL LA League Season 3 Finals over All Knights

Furious have assured themselves a spot at the ESL LA League Season 3 LAN Finals with a 2-0 victory over All Knights in the Southern Cone qualifier's grand final.

With the culmination of ESL Latin America League S3 - Brazil, W7M and Isurus were the first two teams to earn their place at the LAN Finals. With their victories, two more spots from the 'Northern Cone' & 'Southern Cone' qualifiers make up the four-team tournament in São Paulo, Brazil.

The Southern Cone qualifier saw 7 teams battle their way through the round-robin stage, where the Chileans of All Knights were the first to make their mark in the decider without dropping a single game, while the Argentinians of Furious tackled Quad 16-11 to reach the best-of-three grand final.

nbl's Furious earn their place at the ESL LA League S3 Finals

The grand final kicked off on Nabil "⁠nbl⁠" Aleua & company's map pick, Dust2, but the Chilean side displayed a stout defensive first half, as they claimed an 11-4 lead at halftime. However, things turned sour for All Knights, who were unable to tame Luca "⁠Luken⁠" Nadotti as he posted an impressive 1.44 rating in the Argentinians twelve round comeback to secure the 16-14 map victory.

Up next in the series was Nuke. A highly-contested first half saw the two teams go back and forth, but Furious were able to edge the 8-7 halftime victory before switching sides. From there, the Argentinian side dominated the second half on their T side, with Luken once again leading the way with a 1.79 rating, helping his squad win eight out of nine rounds to take the 2-0 series, and book their place at the LA League Season 3 LAN Finals.

No. EU tier 3> NA tier 3 North > Complexity. When GF played the Dreamhack they won 14 rounds over North. I think its hard to say this teams is tier x when the teams arent the same possibilities... Argentina team (seleccion) won against denmark (valde was in that team, others players are now in fragters or something like that) i mean: more chances more level...

i dont think tiers are an actual thing, most top 100 teams have roughly the same aim and talent, but some happen to have better strategies and infrastructure
